As some of you may have seen listed in the forums or even on facebook, there was an article posted recently about how Facebook killed the Virtual World. I personally don't see that as a fair comparison, the two are rather opposite and are very different in many many ways.
Hmm' it seems I spent my entire THERE existence as the other-half of a virtual couple. When I was fresh in THERE only a few weeks I met Percy and had my own personal guide to there.com,we ended up being in a friendship/relationship that lasted almost my whole experience in THERE. Living 1000's of miles apart (Boston to London) THERE was our world. After THERE ended we ended. Now THERE is back and Percy is happy with his new fiance' (congratz btw) and I'm standing in THERE wondering what to do with myself. Well now I know what the "Happening Now" schedule is for! Turns out RaceSmart is having a party, I love driving so that sounds great. It's at BambooCrater Xtreme 4x4 Park...oooh Tuv's. Looking at the party go-ers profiles I saw many in a club called guinea pigs. Right now we all are Beta Testers because the world isn't fully open. But people like RaceSmart beta tested as soon as THERE2 started getting ready. She was amazed and grateful to be chosen, and her and Zip (living in the same house) saw it all first hand and got to share exciting bits with us.RaceSmart talked more about Beta-testing before the Gold Fun Passes got in. She was surprised at the ones that were exclusively chosen to participate, but felt the choices represented a wide variety of Theriens and were well made. They ranged from people like virtual site owner Thumdar, moviemaker/gameshow host Francis_7, to her friend who said: I can't believe they picked me all I do is paintball. At the party people also discussed compasses (you have to download b-boy...Bedican that's the one). I told them I didn't have one. Go to Thumdar.com you'll find everything you need I was told. More people showed up including Korben who took me for wild ride on the track, including getting stuck in the JND platform which he said always happens. lol' Just when I thought the party was over Korben took me to paint the THERE town red (or purple you might say). We played Crack when I said I never did before and met up with a lot of Theriens, and the night was so much fun, one of the best I spent in THERE, so good thing I found out what was "Happening Now"!
Party with RaceSmart telling us that after a while people didn't know if it was her or Zip talking. Doh'
So tonight in THERE I was really enjoying my stuff. Trying on everything in my inventory and just deciding what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to sell/return to get the 900t's I needed to rent the house for my club for just one more month. I did get the tbux that I needed and now I got nostalgic about my things. I forgot how much I really enjoyed what I designed and all the memories that went with it.
The outfit I designed and wish I was wearing when Samsyn showed up....
So basically I was just relaxing and about to go to an event when I got a surprise visit from Samsyn. He had his staff Icon in his logo (which looked awesome) and a really cool Samsyn jacket. Which ofc I was wearing a mis-matched outfit, two pieces I had decided to get rid of...ugh why didn't I. So now I'm caught wearing a bad outfit, but realizing it would have been weirder to suddenly change I stayed in it lol.
I never met Samsyn before so it was interesting to see what he was like. He was pretty interested in his job, commenting on my eyes being too shiny, but then with a sense of humor and charm he commented on their nice shape and the non-groucho like brows I was sporting. Which is what every girl likes to hear. 'blush 'lol. I wanted to repay the kindness and I told him I really liked his jacket. He said it was his second favorite possesion and to my surprise he took out his favorite one. It was a giant buzzsaw hoverboard thing! Good thing we were in THERE otherwise my clubhouse would be chopped to bits and we would be headless.
Okay NOW I want to do it all, I mean what if I can't get in THERE again? Or at least for a long time.... What can I do? the list is longgggggg. Avie sacrifices given. Cards, my dog, see who's in world. I wannnt to ride my buggy noa. I find the most amazing crazy up to the sky track/ramp. I know I have a hoverboard. My inventory is so disorganized where is all my crap! Oh yeah my hoverpack...and I find my felium ball rofl. So basically I run around like a crazed avie trying everything like it's brand new. And it turns out I'm not force logged out and we had plenty of time after all, plenty of time to just relax after a long night hanging out in THERE.
The Chaz and Elaur join us for a jump of Avie sacrifices.
A next step to the opening and further installation of There.com has been made. Michael Wilson (CEO of There.com) has decided to leave the hosting of the There forums to Thumdar.com.
You can read all about it on Michael Wilson's blog I am so There.
Thumdar.com is a website that started out as a download site for There.com, but grew out to be a large community and forum site in the past 7 years for more virtual worlds than just There.com.
